Six Hali-famous contestants.

Three judges.

One trophy.

… and YOU?

One amazing fundraiser for Eastern Front Theatre

A nail-biting, brutal competition to find the best (non-actor) actor in the bunch.

The SEVEN contestants will gather votes from clients, friends, family, fans: their sponsors. Each contestant will have a sponsorship mentor: helping them, promoting them, rooting for them – generally, being in their corner.

The contestants will be partnered with a theatre mentor and together they will create and submit their audition tape. These ‘auditions’ will be used online to gather votes. Votes make money. Each contestant will gather enough votes to hit their team target…. Or exceed it, for bragging rights.

The contestants will be encouraged to create the buzz for their votes.

The seven contestants will show up at Casino Nova Scotia on April 7th to play a series of live rounds in front of a panel of tough judges and an audience of 3-400 people. Each round sees two more eliminated. The audience will get to see a showdown, with thrills, spills and so much drama.

What’s more, they get to vote and choose the winner.

SEVEN enter, but only one can be crowned the ‘So, You Think You Can Act?’ Thespian of 2017, taking home the coveted SYTYCA trophy.

The online fundraising component and voting system will be managed by EFT sponsor immediaC.


We are so excited to announce our six Hali-famous contestants. These brave and wonderful souls have decided to tread the boards and make a dramatic play for the ‘So, You Think You Can Act?’ trophy 2017. We thank them for their generosity.

The public will vote for the celebrity they like the best BEFORE the event happens, giving TWO contestants IMMUNITY in the first knockout round on April 7th.

Voiting will open on March 10th for one month. Each celebrity has been partnered with an acting mentor. Their first task is to submit their AUDITION TAPE for you to see!


Would YOU like to play? Ever dreamed of being in a reality show? Ever had fantasies about a leading role on stage. Here’s your chance! Send in a 1 minute audition tape – make it as dramatic as you like! Let us know why we should pick you to be our WILD CARD Contestant. A simple video taken on your phone will be fine.
